All Men Are Brothers: Autobiographical Reflections Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All Men Are Brothers is a compelling and unique collection of Gandhi's most trenchant writings on nonviolence, especially in the context of a post-nuclear world. This compendium, which reads like a traditional book - "Gandhi without tears" - is drawn from a wide range of his reflections on world peace. "It is not that I am incapable of anger, but I succeed on almost all occasions to keep my feelings under control. Such a struggle leaves one stronger for it. The more I work at this, the more I feel delight in my life, the delight in the scheme of the universe. It gives me a peace and a meaning of the mysteries of nature that I have no power to describe.">

Book News Annotation:

The life and ideas of the Indian champion of nonviolence are as timely now as when the original 1980 Continuum edition was published. Gandhi's thoughts are collected on such topics as self- discipline, religion, marriage, women's roles, and the link between moral values and economics. The book includes a glossary, sources, and a chronology of events in his life (1869-1948). Cited in Books for College Libraries, 3d ed.

Synopsis:

Famous for his successful leadership of non-violent Nationalist resistance to British Imperial rule in India, Mohandas K. Gandhi is one of the most iconic figures of the twentieth century. All Men Are Brothers brings together some of his most important writings in a single volume. As well as Gandhi's inspiring articulation of his philosophy of non-violent resistance and his thoughts on religion and theology, the book also includes reflections on topics ranging from politics, education, women's rights and technology as well as meditations on his own life. Now available in the Bloomsbury Classics series, the book also includes a glossary of terms and a brief chronology of Gandhi's life.

About the Author


The name of Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869-1948) is one of the most widely recognized in the world. His Autobiography has been translated into all the major languages. In the first half of his life, Gandhi suffered from a debilitating shyness. After practicing law in South Africa and India, in his middle and later years, Gandhi was recurrently in contact with the man who would inspire his assassination. Gandhi's life of peace thus always had a tragic dimension. His assassination occurred on January 30, 1948, virtually in conjunction with the declared independence of India and Pakistan.
